  • Abstract:

    English: In 2000, the National Minister of Education mandated the inclusion of school-based assessment (SBA) as a component of the Senior Certificate (Grade 12) assessment. This study examines how managing the moderation of SBA could improve the quality of assessment at Grade 12 level. The literature study elucidates the underlying dimensions of managing SBA and the quantitative study investigates the perceptions of educators regarding these dimensions. The findings are consolidated into an enhanced model that calls for continuous moderation of assessment tasks at school level, based on the principles of systems theory.
